Day #327: Christus Dominus 42-43

Today in the Decree Concerning the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church, we continue to look at the cooperation of bishops with each other.

In today’s reading, we look at the third and final section of this chapter where the Council Fathers examine “Bishops Having an Inter-Diocesan Office.”  Article 42 speaks of the necessity of having some bishops take on certain roles for “joint ventures” amongst dioceses of a region.  Article 43 asks for the establishment of a military vicariate in eaqch nation.
